The influences and styles of music on this album are so beautifully varied and put together in suck a way, that it makes me feel like I’ve been able to sneak into his head for a few moments and listen as he collects his thoughts.
You can hear his sense of joy as Buckley plays around with new styles and concepts and experiments with his musical range.
The album is filled with the recognisable heart wrenching soulful lyrics and melodies associated with Buckley, but there is a real sense of his playfulness, listening to Buckley push out into Jazz, Rock and other musical genres as well as developing the subject matter and lyrical content on which he works.
The songs are raw and in their unfinished state as he left them with his voice perfectly portraying the whole range of human emotion. This feeling the unfinished and ‘work in progress’ for me really adds to their emotion and potency. A great album to sit back and contemplate with.
